More on Cricklewood:
The £4 billion Brent Cross Cricklewood regeneration scheme is the largest in Greater London. A joint venture between Barnet council, developers Hammerson and investment group Standard Life, the plan is to build 7,500 new homes, three schools, new health facilities, transform the Brent Cross shopping centre, provide a new station for Midland Mainline and Thameslink trains and improve the transport infrastructure around the north circular road.
The plan was given planning permission way back in 2010 but only recently has detailed planning permission been received for the rebuilding of the West Hendon estate backing on to the Welsh Harp reservoir; a detailed planning application for the section around Brent Cross is expected at the end of 2013.
Other new homes include Langhorne Place (0300 373 3000) is a development of one- and two-bedroom flats by Network Group in Flowers Close, off Brook Road in nearby Dollis Hill; prices start at £244,995.
